What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Dental Hygienist in Red Oak:
"45 years in profession."
1.) Take care of your back. 2.) Profession does not have many benefits so think about what you want and expect out of a job. 3.) Hours are good but not a lot of flexibility for taking time off unless you have someone to cover for you. 4.) Usually no scheduled raises.
Dental Hygienist in Danville:
"Do Not Participate in Office Gossip."
Make an effort to get along with all co-workers. Never start or perpetuate office rumors or gossip. Understand that in a dental environment you will occasionally have to pick up the slack for someone else. You do what needs to be done to keep the office running on schedule even if it's not your official job duty. If you feel that you are doing this too often and your coworkers are not being team players (and nothing is being done by "the people in charge"), then maybe you should start looking for another place of employment because you will get worn out and start to resent your co-workers. As a result patients one way or the other, will not receive the treatment they deserve.
